Sullen minimalist downtempo tunes flavored with a little IDM/glitch put together by a classically-trained electronica composer who takes inspiration from the Philippines and transforms it into audio snapshots of decay and beauty. The standout is the all-too-brief "Paradise Island" which pits lush soundtrack strings with ambient jungle sounds.
Ikaw Maganda (which literally means "you beautiful" in Filipino) is Chromer's first QED release, but definitely not his last.
Keywords: IDM, downtempo, and soundtrack. More poised than Aphex Twin, less congenial than Autechre.
